Happy Bodhi Day!!

Happy Bodhi Day! Celebrate awakening to who you really are. Today is celebrated as the day that Guatama Buddha....became a Buddha...an Awakened or Enlightened one. May we all be blessed with finding the Buddha within!

Today is also a special day for me as I had my Ti Sarana ceremony. It was a ceremony for me to make a formal commitment to the Buddhist path or as I see it the path of Dharma.

I thank my sensei Rev. Koyo Kubose and his lovely wife Adrienne san for officiating and participating in this ceremony with me today.

Currently I am participating in a two year non-residential lay minister program with the Bright Dawn Institute of Oneness Buddhism. This program has proven to be an invaluable tool for my personal healing and spiritual growth.

I was given the Dharma name Hoyo which I am told means "fragrant sun".

I give thanks to my ancestors to bring me to this day.

In Joy and Oneness
